~April Menu http://www.sjsomaha.org/media/files/2018_April_Menu.pdf

 

~April Spotlight Skills: This month we will focus on building the skill 'Accepting Criticism or a Consequence.' Criticism and consequences are a part of everyone's life. Students might hear criticism from others as a result of behavior or work habits. Sometimes students use behaviors that result in consequences. This month we will encourage students to work on positive ways to accept criticism and consequences. Below are the steps to practice this skill with your children at home: 

Accepting Criticism or a Consequence

  1. Look at the person.
  2. Say “Okay.”
  3. Stay calm.

1st Grade Eagles Wings Luncheon April 17th   

Lunch for our SJS staff and support staff.

Easy way to volunteer – if you have a student in 1st grade go to iVolunteer http://stjamesseton.ivolunteer.com/event_126 and see what they may need for the lunch they are providing.

Confirmation Receptions

April 20th SEA – April 27th SJ - Receptions are being planned immediately following Confirmation Masses at both St. James and St. Elizabeth Ann. It is our hope that this tradition will continue, with the 6th and 7th grade families planning for the event and then being able to relax and enjoy the evening when their son or daughter is confirmed in 8th grade.

Thank you to all those who have been volunteering to help in the many different ways! Parents + School = Winning Team!
